All in a Name

March 18, 2018

When David Allen Coe would come on,
Lil Friend would be shouted through the House.
It was our cue,
Meet in the kitchen,
It was our dance.

David Allen Coe,
It was Our Song.
I’d step upon his boots,
Left hand behind his waist,
His gentle hand would meet
My small delicate one.

There in the small area,
Surrounded
by an audience of one,
We’d dance, belting out
Our Song,
“You Never Even Called Me by my Name”

He was my Big Friend,
He was my daddy,
Dancing there,
In our kitchen,
Where nothing else mattered.

The only time he’d
let the phone ring,
For our time together
Lasted only a brief
Five minutes, 12 seconds,
But in in that brief moment
where I was His Lil Friend
nothing else was more important.

Time stopped,
Dancing upon his feet,
Gliding across the floor
Never wanting it to end,
Dancing with Big Friend,
My hero, my daddy.
